Today, purchasing manager indexes figures will come out from Europe and the United States.
Few scenarios on the table today:
- In London Trading session – positive Euro-Zone and German economic data could provide with market peacefulness followed by Bitcoin trend reversal selling theme. Conversely, the 6,000 mark may breach one more time upon negative data.
- In New York Session – the morning trend could accelerate, decelerate upon 13:45 PMI data. This is the most important hour of the Bitcoin trading day.
It is nice to know that:
Purchasing Managers Index, or the PMI, is a strong economic-health-indicator which is derived from monthly surveys of a number of carefully selected companies across the manufacturing, construction, retail, and service sectors. The PMI is based on five major indicators: inventory levels, new orders, production, supplier deliveries and the employment environment. All indicators are calculated separately and then combined together for a final number. An index total over 50 indicates economic improvement, while anything below 50 indicates an economic decline. The farther away from 50 the index is, the stronger the change over the month. An advantage of using the PMI is that it is a fact-based indicator, not opinion-based.
